Darin Morse Posted April 18, 2009 Report Share Posted April 18, 2009 Foxhole 3 Callington 6 Wednesday 15th April 2009 Anthony Mason proved far too hot to handle hitting a second-half hat-trick to quell any thoughts of a home recovery as weakened Foxhole slid to a fourth consecutive defeat. Although Butler's lob flew only just over within 18 seconds, Callington quickly settled and took the lead on 17 when Boon rose to head home Blatchford's inswinging corner. Dennis Mason almost doubled the advantage five minutes later, racing unchallenged through a defence badly missing the suspended Rowe, but Holland pushed aside the drive. However the Foxes began to play some decent football and, after seeing a free-kick skim the bar, Warne's 39th minute dribble was ended in the box by Wyatt, whose possibly justified protests that he'd won the ball earned him a booking. Warne converted the penalty himself only for Callington to nearly regain the lead before the break when Dennis Mason seized on Prince's horrendous backpass. The winger's initial effort was blocked by Holland, Mason then inexplicably opting to force in the rebound using his arm, an offence spotted by the referee. Regrettably Prince was not to get away with another error two minutes after the restart, his poor headed clearance falling to Dennis Mason, whose unselfishness presented Yates with an easy opportunity. Friendship's clever ball gave Nicholls the chance for an immediate response, but Johnson was quickly off his line to save with his legs. Nevertheless Ansell was not to be denied on 52, rifling left-footed across the keeper for a fine equaliser, but two rapid goals by Anthony Mason in the 57th and 59th minutes appeared to clinch the points for the visitors. Wyatt's harsh dismissal for dissent offered some hope, and Warne made it 4-3, ramming home from close range after a flowing move. While local youngster Rundle was incredibly left languishing on the bench and striker Friendship was mysteriously withdrawn, the introduction of two defensive substitutes caused consternation among the home faithful, although Panter, Adam Holland and Ansell all came close to a leveller. But Watfa notched a breakaway fifth on 83, and Mason again sprinted away from Hobbs to complete his trio four minutes from time. At least Foxhole managed to keep eleven men on the field, the sole blemish being Butler's first-half caution for a foul on Green. Foxhole (4-4-2): Ryan Holland 7; Matt May 5 (sub. Steve Panter 5), Lewis Prince 5, Phil Hobbs 5, Adam Holland 6; Andrew Butler 7, Jason Warne 6, Steve Mooney 4, Scott Ansell 7; Kyle Friendship 6 (sub. David Grose 5), Liam Nicholls 7.
